Introduction

question1. What are the common contrast agents used in Body CT Scanning?
question 2. Why do we routinely use oral and IV contrast for CT scanning?
question3. Do we always use IV and oral contrast in “every” patient?
question4. Who decides on the use of oral and IV contrast in a specific patient?
questionThe final decision sits with the radiologist who balances the clinical hx, the clinical presentation and the goals of the study. We have a series of specific protocols that are optimized for specific clinical situations. The protocols can be found on www.ctisus.com in the protocol section. These protocols are commonly updated.
